Best of IIFA Awards 2016 | Style Files

Saturday turned into a big Bollywood night, as all roads led to Madrid. After all, it was the fourth time that the IIFA Awards had returned to Europe and the host country this year was none other than Spain. And needless to say, it was enough to get our industry folks excited.

The awards night saw a bevy of Bollywood celebrities turn up in their favourite outfits, created by their favourite designers. We got you covered with the best looks from IIFA Rocks in our last post. So, here's presenting some of the hottest looks spotted at the IIFA Awards main event last weekend. Take notes, people!

1. Aditi Rao Hydari

She impressed us with her princess inspired look at the IIFA Rocks. For the main event, the actress chose an emerald green gown by Shantanu & Nikhil, which looked lovely on her. We love how these Outhouse Jewellery earrings compliment the outfit. Adding a charming touch to the look was the gold hair band, with the perfect make up by Elton Fernandez.

2. Bipasha Basu

This newly wedded hottie turned up the heat in a beautiful royal blue ruffled gown by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. With hair tied up in an elegant up do, Bipasha added a nice touch of bling with a pair of solitaire earrings by Leshna Shah's Aurelle and a studded cuff by Mahesh Notandas. Minimal make up, with a glossy swipe of lipstick, completed her look.

3. Deepika Padukone

Bollywood's stunning Mastani arrived in style. Deepika Padukone chose a magnificent Sabyasachi creation for the awards night, where she walked home with the Best Actress trophy. Styled by Shaleena Nathani, the outfit - a Godet skirt with cape - is inspired by the Spanish bullfighters. The beautiful emerald necklace and earrings by Tanishq complimented her outfit very well. Slick tied up hair, well defined brows, smokey eyes and barely there lips - Oh! We are floored already.

4. Divya Khosla Kumar

The Yaariyaan director never fails to make heads turn on the red carpet with her sartorial choices. For the awards night, she gave the traditional look a twist by taking us back to the retro era with her sharp eyes and 50's inspired up do (with hair tied up in a bun). The lehanga by Vikram Phadnis fitted her like a dream. We like how she added some fine ethnic jewellery, gajra and a small bindi to the look. Truly beautiful!

5. Sonakshi Sinha

One of our favourite looks at the IIFA Awards this year has got to be this. Sonakshi Sinha experimented with her outfits at every outing in Madrid, but this Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla look has got to be the winner among all. The actress had her princess moment in this stunning white organza dress, which had some beautiful pearls, sequins and Swarovski crystal work. Right from the hair to bold lips and her studded Louboutins, everything spelled Wow! Love that smile and spunk. Perfect to go with a beautiful outfit like this.

6. Nargis Fakhri

After a powerful appearance at IIFA Rocks, Nargis opted for a sexy Namrata Joshipura number, which was part of the collection showcased by the designed at AIFW 2016. Cold shoulder, nude lips, a slick ponytail, Swarovski earrings and the perfect pout; Nargis Fakhri was ready to rule the awards night with an amazingly stylish look.

7. Priyanka Chopra

Our desi girl aka Quantico star Priyanka Chopra enthralled the audience with a powerful live performance (Yes! She danced on pre-recorded tracks sung by her). She also took home two trophies - one for her performance in Bajirao Mastani, while the other for being the most powerful woman. For the evening, stylist Cristina Ehrlich picked a haute couture number from Elsa Schiaparelli's SS'16 collection. Priyanka looked charming in a lilac silk cigaline gown. Diamond earrings and a studded ring by Cartier were the perfect add-ons. Wine lips, well defined eyes and a slick hair up do was just what this look ordered!

8. Shilpa Shetty Kundra

Shilpa Shetty Kundra looked every inch a diva in this white custom couture gown with gold piping by designers Shantanu & Nikhil. The waist cut outs in this gown perfectly accentuated her curves and as the actress likes to call it, 'the gown fitted her like second skin'. The actress wore her hair open and kept it simple with minimal make up. Gold ear cuffs matched the piping on her gown well and we must say, Shilpa carried off this look with great panache.
